    Lilly Allen says Susan Boyle can't sing. I find that rich coming from the whiniest, most uninspired-sounding vocalist of the last 15 years.

    That's not entirely true..

    Lilly Allen is still a twerp though

    I've been meaning to pick-up the re-issued Isn't Anything for a while now... Loveless sounds slightly better since remastering, but I reckon the difference will be more noticeable with IA.

    it would appear that, ten years after Teenage Snuff Film, that Rowland S Howard is to release a single:

    it could be a fine thing. I am at the very least, rather keen to hear it.

    there's a few hints on his myspace as well

    I'm betting an album may appear.

    Lifted straight from ye olde VT catalogue, this excites me no end and somehow, I must have it:

    The A Band
    April 12th 1992
    Music Mundane No Cat

    Excellent new unearthing of a wild unreleased A Band home recording, straight to two-track in 1992, discovered in the archive of Neil Campbell. The A Band are, of course, the missing link between earlier free music groups in the UK and the kind of rock-informed improvised eternities of Youngs, Campbell, Bower et al. On Campbell’s own archival imprint with individually hand-painted sleeves: “Vintage 70+ minutes 15 piece A Band session, recorded straight to 2-track cassette in 1992. Performers include A-stalwarts like Sticky Foster, Stewart Walden, Neil Campbell, Jim Plaistow and Vince Earimal alongside some less familiar names. The session opens w/ a driving rock piece in tutti, then devolves into a series of solo, then duo, then trio, quartet, etc pieces, w/ performers and their respective instruments drawn out of a hat. Then to close, a 35 minute concert-style piece called "Just past not-too-boring" where performers started playing one at a time, entering the recording room a minute each apart (order was again decided by pulling names out of a hat), and then once everyone was in there, departing in the order they entered. During this last piece, Will Irvine was obviously bored by playing music, so decided he'd try to undress and grope as many people as possible, as a kind of disruptive element. Sounds like the beginnings of a comedy gay sex orgy on the tape, w/ Sticky commentating in his own inimitable style.” – Neil Campbell.

    Fucken quality. Who'd be up for doing musical experiments like this if we could find the space and time and be allowed to have the necessary intoxicants to make it all work properly?

    And who'd care what it sounded like. Just be fun to DO. I reckon I could get some kind of grant for something like this. What a fucken HOOT!

    am i the only one who feels very strongly about the gayness of bands that charge money.

    i mean, going to irish for a drink and having to pay ten dollars at the door because there's a band there?

    even two dollars seems really wrong, to me.

    do they do it because they have to? or do they want to make money or what?

    and when musicians have their little ep launches and shit, and they're at their stalls charging like 5/10+ bucks a cd. it's pathetic. gayest thing since bread and butter.

    i'd have thought a fan base comes before the dollars. as it's the fan base that makes the dollars, not the otherway around. if you even want to get into that.

    i hate the smug indie "i charge a modest fee" neat little attitude. they should be crawling to give their stuff away. uber ego inflation. music's too glorified, these days.
    massive sell out. grinds my gears.
    cover bands are the ones who get the weekend pub shows, they dont give a shit about anything except the money they make.
    they fail. they are the sell outs. original bands don't get shows like that because new shit isn't what drunk sportos and ditzy blondes wanna hear. they wanna yell out the shit off the radio.

    of course a fan base would come before the dollars but bands cant usually make cds for free... or hire a venue for their little ep launches for free. fan bases are there to support the bands they like. thats why people buy cds, willingly pay door fees and buy their merch. so that the band can be closer to having their costs covered so that they can keep doing new & better things. well, im happy to do that anyway.
